Parents must take more care of their children, specially when they are on line.
As matter of fact, according to a study made in Grat Britain, a third of children, get porno's pictureson line before they are 10.
And 8 children out of 10, aged between 14 and 16, download from porno sites at their home PC, while two thirds of them get porno's photografs on their mobile's telephone.
"A serious warning"- say the psicologist Michael Flood- " also because porno's sites on line, don't give a correct idea what sex really is, and lesser they give an education on relation and love affair, giving instead a totaslly wrong and disturbing idea on young generation about sex, such to mischif and mislead young people. Furthermore pornography is more addictive than drugs and alcohol."
Parents must provide their home PC with proper access's filter in order to prevent download from porno's sites by their children, while the school and other education's agencies must provid a correct information on the delicate matter.

And more than eight in ten children aged 14 to 16 say they regularly access hardcore photographs and footage on their home computers, while two-thirds watch it on their mobile phones. Yet 70 per cent admit they have never been physically intimate with someone - meaning their first experience of sex is watching often violent scenes online. Parents appear to be unaware of the risk to their children as three-quarters of the children surveyed confirmed their families had never discussed online porn with them. In many cases, parents are simply unable to keep up with their computer-literate kids and have no idea how to install parental internet controls or to stop their children getting around them. Experts warned the flood of extreme sexual imagery was creating a time bomb for young people who would have problems with romantic relationships when they were older and were more likely to commit rape. Leading sociologist Michael Flood told Psychologies magazine, which interviewed hundreds of secondary school pupils for the survey: 'There is compelling evidence that pornography has negative effects on individuals and communities. 'Porn shows sex in unrealistic ways and fails to address intimacy, love, connection or romance. It doesn't mean every young person is going out to rape somebody but it increases the likelihood.' Sex addiction therapist John Woods warned watching porn was more addictive than drugs or alcohol. He told a Sunday newspaper: 'The pendulum has swing too far. We are allowing abusive sexual imagery to be accessed by children. 'We need regulation but that needs people to say enough is enough and demand change.' The NSPCC said it was 'really concerned' about the growing problem. Spokesman Lucy Thorpe said: 'For girls and boys, porn presents an extreme sexuality that puts pressure on them to behave in a certain way and view each other in a negative light.' Justine Roberts, of online parents' group Mumsnet, added: 'We are going to produce a generation with a terrifying idea of what sex is about.' Psychologies recommended a range of measures to stop children watching online porn. They included downloading sex filters - which are often available from internet service providers - onto home computers and checking your child's school has an 'e-safety' policy.
